*Bernadette Mayer. Indigo Bunting. 2004. 45 pp.

This book was published in the Canary Islands, by the same press that did Bernstein's The Absent Father in Dumbo: Zasterle. I don't particularly like individual poems in the book as much as I like the whole personality of the poet that comes through.

It's a great title. I want to read a lot of books with great titles now. Apparently it's the name of a bird.

[Update: as is scarlet tanager, the title of another book by BM. The tanager just came up in a crossword puzzle I was doing.]
